I wish I could have roomed in alternative housing. I like you idea that Amanda doen't yet know, but is completely willing to support Spock and his 'romantic intrest'. I almost want to see more written with Spock meeting and dating Jim while still at the Academy.

What an admirable solution to ST2009. Uhura as Spock's SGF. Allows for comforting without connection. Neat.
Also great short story, short and sucinct. I can just imagine the scene. I suppose when you have crossed race and species to commit to the man you love nothing will phase you.
The first time I saw ST2009 in the theater (and this was just before I became a hardcore K/S fan, so I wasn't even biased then!) I seriously wanted to puke when I saw what the writers had done to Spock and Uhura's characters. Nichelle Nichols always said that she had imagined Uhura in TOS as looking up to Spock as a teacher, and that the character was one of the few on the ship who was good enough friends with Spock to be able to tease him a little bit (like in "Charlie X.") Nichelle always stressed that the relationship between the two was -never- sexual...it was always one of simple friendship.
Personally, I love the idea of Uhura being Spock's SGF. It's an idea that I've thrown out in a few other one-shots that I've written: "Wall-E and the Spork" and "Get a Clue, Eve."
I'm glad that you liked this little story!

that is so cute. Quite a way too come out. I wonder how it will work with Sarek. For somereason I wonder if the straightforward approach would work with him or would Sarek stubbornness would have him try to illogic the problem out of existance. (Or just ignore it)
But it's a cute little scene.
I didn't know you wrote any young Spock and Kirk
(Though in TOS I think he was like 40 or 50)
I'm glad that you found it enjoyable! Have to say that I didn't ponder much into how it would work with Sarek. Would be something interesting to ponder on for a while though, no doubt.
As for writing young Spock and Kirk stuff...no, I really haven't written much. Just this and "Meld Away the Butterflies" for Academy stuff. Everything else thus far has been set on the ship. It's not that I don't like the idea of writing young!Jim and young!Spock stories...I just haven't gotten around to them yet, you know?
There's just so much to write, and never enough time.

This is a nice little piece. Now I need to get back to reading 'Butterflies'.
Just like I need to get back to writing it, though I've got another one-shot in my head that I may need to write first that was inspired by a friend at about 4 am this morning.
I don't know what it is about my brain lately, but stories just seem to be leaking out of my ears lately. (I am NOT complaining, mind you.) Obviously somebody ate her writer's wheaties this month or something...
